Burgess Cellars 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa Valley.  The wine shows off dense Cabernet Sauvignon character accented with vanilla, balancing spices and toasty oak from traditional barrel aging. Complex and elegant.


Emerson Vineyards 2011 Pinot Gris - Monmouth, Oregon.  A vibrant golden glow introduces this powerfully aromatic and incredibly flavorful Oregon wine. Grapefruit and green apple aromas dominate the initial scents. Intricate hints of flowers and honey build on the intense citrus notes. The crisp acidity and clean bright finish are balanced perfectly.

Dry Creek Fume Blanc - Sonoma.  The palate starts lush with amply viscosity as flavors of lemon-lime citrus, white peach and lemon grass meld seamlessly, all while being uplifted by streaks of clean minerality and buoyant acidity.

Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay - Central Coast, CA.  "Smooth and ripe with juicy fruit, creamy texture and notes of vanilla; rich, balanced and crisp; long and fresh." 90 pts., Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar


Pedroncelli 2012 Pinot Noir - Russian River Valley. An elegant, medium-bodied Pinot Noir. Aromas are floral, with violet and light cedar notes. These are followed by flavors of strawberry/ cherry with toasted oak accents. This wine has a spicy texture and the finish is nicely balanced between bright acidity and mild tannins.

Punto Final 2013 Malbec -  Argentina.  Notes of blackberry, blueberry and cassis in the aroma. On the palate, the wine is balanced and round, with a jammy mouthfeel and a long finish.

Cousino Macul 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Chile.  This Cabernet offers aromas and flavors highlighting red fruits and spices. Bing cherry, red currants and boysenberry fruit aromas persist on the palate. Subtle mint, bay leaf and spice come through in the bright, refreshing finish. This is a fruit forward, medium bodied Cabernet.

Or choose a bottle from our shelves and with an additional $5 corkage fee, sit back, relax and enjoy your own bottle in our wine lounge.
